The Rancho Obi-Wan Experience

Posted By Mike on August 19, 2012

The Rancho Obi-Wan Experience (booth #1235) at Star Wars Celebration VI will be exhibiting items ranging from the first prototype Boba Fett laser rifle (1978), to unproduced Star Wars action figures, to an incredible two-foot high pinata of Luke on a tauntaun. About 300 special pieces from the world's largest private collection of Star Wars memorabilia, owned by Steve Sansweet, will be on display at the 800-square-foot exhibit. Rancho Obi-Wan is a nonprofit museum depending on the generous support of the public to share the excitement, fun, and friendship that Star Wars has brought. Its motto is "Inspired by the Force of Imagination."

"We've got so many incredible things to share with fellow fans that we asked for and got more floor space to show them all," Sansweet said. "I look forward to saying hello to old friends and making lots of new ones at the show."

CVI Membership Kits
The first 300 Memberships purchased will include a special Yoda Celebration VI patch with art by Jerry Vanderstelt, a great companion to the already-included Obi-Wan Kenobi Charter patch, also by Jerry (Already a Member?

"To say that we’re excited about the Rancho Obi-Wan Experience at Star Wars Celebration VI (Booth # 1235) is a real understatement. To say that we’re completely ready and that everything has gone smoothly falls into that same category.

Who knew? We’ve never before participated in anything of this huge scale as an exhibitor. Selecting from among a couple hundred thousand items, trying to figure out where everything would go in our booth, deciding how much packing material we’d need to order (it came in at quadruple our budget!), working with both Reed Pop and Freeman—the outfits that run Celebration VI and provide all the in-show logistics respectively—as well as Lucasfilm itself, doing the actual packing—well, all of that is a very large challenge."
